Project

The ICF-CY Therapy Care project is an Erasmus+ K2 Cooperation  for innovation and the exchange of good practices action European  project that deals with the quality of the teaching and care services  offered to children with special needs who are integrated into normal  schools.

The  number of children with learning difficulties and disabilities of autism  spectrum increases every year. Every day psychologists and special  educators meet problems addressing the needs of this group of children.  The projects aims at developing an educational approach to reduce the  disparities in tackling the problem of integrating children with Special  Educational Needs (SEN) into regular schools.  The project focuses on  children aged 6-12 years old with SEN, in particular with Autism /  autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) or Specific Learning difficulty (SpLD).  It will use the ICF-CY Therapy Care classification as a basis to develop a set of  tools that will assist psychologists, special teachers and teachers in  assessing the capabilities of children with SEN, set therapy targets and  assessments benchmarks. The tools created by the ICF-CY Therapy Care project will take the form of an eManual, eGuide and a Card that  will help teachers and professionals to monitor and assess the progress  and achievement of the children.

In  practice teachers and specialists used a large number of materials for  assessment or planning of individual work, but these materials are not  standardized and can be different from country to country. Therefore  every specialist selects what and how to work according to his/her  competencies.
 
The  use of the ICF-CY classification as a basis for study and  implementation of codes will ensure the universality of created  materials, their correctness, accuracy and identification in all  European countries. The work on the project will be based entirely on  the WHO classification: International Classification of Functioning,  Disability and Health of Children and Youth version (ICF-CY). ICF  belongs to the family of international classifications, the most famous  of which is ICD10 (International Classification of Diseases).
